Unlock the power of team feedback in event planning. Discover how to enhance your skills, show appreciation, and grow as an event planner.
You’ve invested your heart and soul into crafting that flawless event, ensuring every aspect was meticulously planned. As the curtains close, it’s time to reflect on the highs, lows, and hopefully, the absence of major hiccups.
While self-reflection is crucial, don’t underestimate the treasure trove of insights your team holds. Each member likely experienced the event from a unique vantage point.
Here are four compelling reasons to seek your team’s input:
1. Fresh Perspectives
Your eyes can only see so much, and your presence is limited to one place at a time. In a sprawling event, certain nuances may escape your notice. Your team members might offer invaluable insights about occurrences that may have slipped by you. For example, the catering lead might illuminate how the audience responded to the food. Tap into your team’s observations to uncover what might have eluded you.
2. Future-Proofing Your Events
Just because one event is in the rearview mirror doesn’t mean the next one isn’t on the horizon. Depending on your role, company, and industry, another event may be in the pipeline. Your team can serve as a brainstorming powerhouse for potential enhancements. This might entail selecting a more spacious venue, diversifying the menu, or reimagining the check-in process. If something didn’t go as planned in the previous event, let it be a catalyst for change in the future.
3. Utilizing Everwall for Real-Time Insights
Everwall can be a game-changer in gathering immediate feedback and insights. It provides a platform for your audience to share their thoughts, allowing you to gauge the event’s success in real-time. This invaluable tool equips you with data to make on-the-spot adjustments, ensuring an unforgettable experience for attendees.
4. Acknowledging Their Invaluable Input
Every team member invested significant time and effort to ensure the event’s success. It’s paramount to demonstrate that you value their contributions. Asking for their opinions not only acknowledges their hard work but also fosters a sense of belonging. Sometimes, this simple act is enough to brighten a team member’s day.
When the final curtain falls, your job is far from over. It’s time to dissect every detail, from the grandiose to the minuscule. Don’t go it alone—enlist your team’s insights and utilize tools like Everwall. This collaborative effort not only streamlines the process but also enhances the overall outcome.
